Happy Birthday to me and the Weekly Menu

I wasn't sure what to expect for life in my 60's but so far so good.  I made it through the first year and am looking forward to the next 9.

Each year I try to experience or learn something new.  Last year I tried sky diving.  I am not sure what I will attempt this year.  I've already taken guitar, quilting, painting, cooking, lessons.  I have done scuba, ziplining, skydiving, and spelunking.   I have visited many new locations and look forward to visiting many more.   Perhaps this year I should plan something calmer....perhaps a cake decorating class....I am pretty bad with frosting LOL.

Today we are going to celebrate my birthday at Rob and Linda's Lakeport house.  It is right on the beach and this may be our last chance as they have decided to sell and make their permanent home in Arizona. 

Since they have everything already packed away, I am providing my own birthday dinner for everyone LOL.  Jessica and Julien are coming and bringing his folks who are visiting from France.  They are also bringing wine and cheese.  I have some leftover turkey filling that I used for tostadas that I'm going to warm up and serve with corn tortilla scoops as a snack.

So I'm starting the Weekly Menu on Friday (today) this week since last week when I made the menu I didn't realize I was cooking.

Saturday we have a retirement party to attend in the afternoon and then Amy, Jen, Lili and I are heading to Windsor, Canada for a Martina McBride concert so Frank and Marissa are on their own.

The rest of the week is busy each day but we should be having dinner at home for the most part.
